Event Information

The Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA), with Health Libraries Australia, the LIANZA Health SIG Community, the LIANZA Special Libraries and Information SLIS Community, the Australian Law Librarians Association and the New Zealand Law Librarians' Association are delighted to announce the relaunch of our Health, Law and Special libraries conference. The Asia-Pacific Health, Law and Special libraries conference will take place as a virtual event on 13th, 14th and 15th June 2023. It will be an opportunity to join delegates from Australia, New Zealand and beyond as we connect over common interests, explore future trends, and learn from the experiences of library professionals throughout the world. 

Conference theme: Connecting. Recent years have brought changes to the way we live and work, where we live and work and how we interact. Connecting with each other, with our communities and cultures, with technology, and with information have become more critical than ever before. This theme looks at our learnings from the recent challenges and focuses on the opportunities for the future. We are seeking your contributions to deliver a fresh, engaging and stimulating conference program. This will be a conference about challenges, experiences and possibilities and moving to a more sustainable and connected future. Key topics will include inclusion, sustainability, innovation and collaboration, information access, equity and inclusion, culture, technology, and the future of the profession.
